Party Monster [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Party Monster tells the true tale of Michael Alig, a high-living New York club kid Macaulay Culkin accused of murdering his drug dealer/roommate Seth Green. The soundtrack aims to capture the decadence of the era -- the ecstasy-fueled mid-'90s -- at least in spirit if not entirely in time. Period club tracks are naturals, from innocent '80s pop hits such as Stacey Q's pulsing "Two of Hearts" and Shannon's soul-inspired "Give Me Tonight" to Hi-NRG barn burners like ABC's crisp synth-pop "How to Be a Millionaire" and Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy's bouncy "Kiss Me" to more underground dance-floor nuggets such as Tones on Tail's handclap-happy "Go!" and Nina Hagen's quirky, ...

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Party Monster tells the true tale of Michael Alig, a high-living New York club kid Macaulay Culkin accused of murdering his drug dealer/roommate Seth Green. The soundtrack aims to capture the decadence of the era -- the ecstasy-fueled mid-'90s -- at least in spirit if not entirely in time. Period club tracks are naturals, from innocent '80s pop hits such as Stacey Q's pulsing "Two of Hearts" and Shannon's soul-inspired "Give Me Tonight" to Hi-NRG barn burners like ABC's crisp synth-pop "How to Be a Millionaire" and Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy's bouncy "Kiss Me" to more underground dance-floor nuggets such as Tones on Tail's handclap-happy "Go!" and Nina Hagen's quirky, punky "New York, New York" an edgy original, not a cover. In the absence of actual '90s club cuts from Junior Vasquez or Danny Tenaglia, the rest of the disc features heady tracks drawn from the early '00s electro-clash scene -- a harder, retro-fied spin on house -- tunes with beats as sharp as their lyrics. The slippery rhythms snaking through Keoki's "Crash" create a fierce undertow, while the X-rated lyrics emanating from Miss Kitten & the Hacker on the raw "Frank Sinatra" paint an entirely different "New York, New York." Things come to a head on a Felix Da Housecat vs. Pop Tarts' fist-pumping "Money, Success, Fame, Glamour," which features vocals from Culkin, Green, and costar Chloe Sevigny and could very well be the film's own mantra.
All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Party Monster revolves around the late-'80s/early-'90s New York club scene. Its soundtrack only reflects that fact somewhat. Sleazy electro-pop that was made well outside the time frame of this scene -- Miss Kittin & the Hacker's naughty "Frank Sinatra," Ladytron's sleek "Seventeen" -- falls in with a somewhat wide variety of songs from the '80s -- ABC's suave "How to Be a Millionaire," Stacey Q's chirpy "Two of Hearts." It had a chance to be the kind of soundtrack that works outside the context of the film, accurately covering a specific scene from a specific point in time, but it wound up being another disc that can mainly relates to those who enjoyed the movie.
Rolling Stone - Barry Walters
Crafty song selections reflect the film's plot and themes like the mirror of a cocaine-smeared compact.

    Excellent! I love it.

    Absolutely great! I couldn't stop listening to this after I bought it. If you're a fan of the movie, you'll probably like the soundtrack. Point blank, this is just a really great, fun album (and I'm not even in to club music). The only mistake is w.i.t.'s "inside out": corny, annoying pseudo-song that leaves a hole in this otherwise perfect soundtrack. Still, definitely worth buying!
